Clare Taylor: remarkable spell of 13-11-5-3

England completed an innings victory over South Africa in the second and final Test at Taunton with over a day and a half to spare. It was England's first Test success in eight years, and wrapped up a 1-0 series win.
The South Africans, who looked a tired side throughout the match, showed only brief glimpses that they were prepared to put up much of a fight after they started the day 248 runs adrift with seven wickets in hand. When Clare Taylor trapped Johmari Logtenberg leg-before inside the first half-hour their chances of making England bat almost disappeared.
Taylor proved almost impossible to get away - she returned the remarkable figures of 13-10-5-3 - and when two quick wickets from Charlotte Edwards reduced South Africa to 133 for 6 the game looked done and dusted. But Cri-Zelda Brits staged a spirited fightback as she cracked 61 off 67 balls. Taylor ended the fun with the first ball of her third spell. The match ended in anti-climax when Nolababalu Ndzundzu retired hurt.
